Neutral Color in B&W

Published by dirk on

I have a fair amount of Kodak Professional Portra 160 NC (Neutral Color) but never tried it out. Having still the Hartblei Tilt-Shift on my Canon 3000N, I thought I should give it go. And low ISO film always comes out great in Caffenol.

Here are the results:

Those strange colorshifts are the results of scanning in color and letting Photoshop ‘guess’ what the color of the film might be. The blue touch comes from the orange mask used on color negatives.

Recipe used: Delta
